Written by Anglican lay reader and former CMS mission partner, Jeremy Davies and former Carlile College Lecturer, the Rev. Kwasi Amoafo, Light for our Path is intended to help preachers preach in a way that is faithful to scripture, follows the church calendar, and relates to the everyday lives of African congregations.
This is the final book in a series of three covering the Bible readings included in the three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. It provides preaching notes and worship suggestions for every Sunday in 2016 (Year C of the lectionary up to Advent and Year A for Advent and Christmas). It is suitable for use in 2019 and every three years thereafter, when the same readings recur.
Seven additional services are also covered: New Year's Day, Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Ascension Day and Christmas Day.
A consolidated index of the scripture passages covered in all three volumes enables them to be used by any reader of the Bible in the same way as a commentary.
In the foreword, the Most Rev. Dr. Eliud Wabukala, Archbishop of Kenya, writes:
"The authors have grounded their work in sound scholarship, but every preacher will find these notes accessible and thought-provoking. ...We need preachers who Sunday by Sunday get into the pulpit confident both that they have an accurate knowledge of the passages about which they will preach and that God will speak to the hearts of his people because he has already spoken in their hearts. I am confident that this guide will be a great help in meeting that need."
Light for our Path is particularly helpful for those in rural areas of Africa who do not have access to commentaries or even a study Bible. The preaching notes provide in simple English the sort of useful information a preacher might obtain from a commentary, Bible dictionary, or study Bible, including background information to set the reading in its context, and a simple exegesis of the passages. The notes suggest applications of the passages to African situations. Each week worship suggestions help worship leaders take up the themes of the readings in other parts of worship.
